Obst!cles & dele!ti ns Delegation is a twosided relationship. It is a demanding function. It demands sacrifices from both the delegator and delegate. !he superior must be willing to slice out a portion of his authority and the subordinate must be willing to shoulder additional responsibilities. )uccessful delegation is a product of psychological willingness of both the parties to accept responsibilities and fulfil the obligation in a sincere way. !he concept of delegation thus is very easy to understand but difficult to operationali e or translate into concrete action. #bstacles than can make delegation within an organi ation difficult or even impossible can be classified into * general categories%+.#bstacles related to the )upervisor.#bstacles related to )ubordinates*.#bstacles related to #rgani ations  Su(e#i #*#el!ted (# ble%s: ã )ome managers are reluctant to delegate because of their belief that they can always take better decisions and show good results than their subordinates. -anagers suffering from an inflated sense of their own often end up doing the subordinate$s work to the criminal neglect of their own activities. ã -anagers are reluctant to delegate because delegation means delusion of authority and power. !he importance of the superior is reduced to the extent of the authority is transferred to the subordinate. !he subordinate may ultimately improve his skills through consistent delegation and may turn out to be potential competitor for the superior$s job. ã )ometimes managers may like to delegate but may not be able to do it effectively because of their inability to identify and communicate the essential features of his plans, policies etc. ã Delegation is not assuring bet. !here is no guarantee that delegation would turn out to be fruitful. )o there is no substance in the argument that delegation must be practiced strictly to improve results.

If the subordinate is deprived of that and he fears that he will be in for uncharitable criticism even for a small genuine mistake, he will shrink from accepting a job. ã A subordinate who believes that he does not possess the requisite information and necessary resources required for turning out a  creditable performance may be generally unwilling to accept difficult assignments. ã )ubordinate who lack selfconfidence depend on the superior for continuous coaching and guidance. !hey feel secure and comfortable in the relationships of dependence with their superior$s. ã A subordinate may hesitate accepting more work delegated to him by the superior if he does not get adequate incentives in the form of recognition and credit and other monetary rewards.
